About the Event

What's  the number one pollutant of our waterways here in North Carolina?  Sediment. Sedimentation causes damage to stream ecology, harms aquatic  plants, and can destroy fish spawning beds. One source of sedimentation  is erosion.

On  February 28, 2022, please join us for a Streambank Repair workshop at  Jumpin Run Creek sponsored by North Carolina Wildlife Federation and run  by NC State Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and  NC State Extension. Pre-registration is required and is free for Island  Wildlife - Cape Fear Region volunteers. **If you're pursuing  certification as an environmental educator and attending this as an  Island Wildlife - Cape Fear Region and North Carolina Wildlife  Federation volunteer, you will receive Criteria II credit from  N.C.  Office of Environmental Education.**

(This workshop is also for professionals pursuing professional Streambank Repair certification at a fee.)

"Attendees  will learn how to protect and improve the natural environment of  streams by stabilizing the stream bank and other eroding areas. NC State  University and other local experts will provide practical,  cost-effective solutions using natural materials and native plants to  create a healthy streamside."
